A Mumbai-bound Vistara flight made an emergency landing at the Jaipur International Airport Monday after an elderly passenger’s health worsened mid-air, an official said.

The flight had 136 passengers on board and two of them were disembarked at the airport here, including a relative of the patient. The flight departed at 4.58 pm for Mumbai, the airport director said.
